sigh, I get so tired of making calls to credit card companies. Somehow, in the unfortunate coincidence of my bill pay service delaying a reoccuring payment and my credit card company upping the due date — we missed a payment – by a day. This shouldn’t have happened, but it did. Now, the past few weeks I’ve been a bit busy paying attention to our new little girl and no so much our finances, but this one is a big one because we’ve lost our 0% balance transfer if I don’t get this corrected.
Now, it’s not the end of the world, I can always transfer the balance off somewhere else. In fact, that’s the bargaining chip I’ll be using when I call them up because this is the same company that I’ve missed 2 payments with in the past 2-3 years (both times during our move) and while they’ve been understanding each time, I don’t expect the same consideration this time. But I’ve been dragging my feet on making the call, as usual. But I at least have the excuse that every time I think I have a moment to make a phone call, a little angel starts fussing and reminding me that I should give up thinking I have any control over anything in my life.
